Fall back!

I lied about my outfit for this weekend. I am actually wearing this:

(From here)
It's freezing up in here! But I can't turn the heat on because I dropped a battery down the furnace last June and I'm pretty sure if I turn on the heat we'll all die in a fiery explosion.
The daylight savings time has distressed and confused my dear father in law, who sent me the following email:

"Dr. Grace:

My wife of almost forty years (not counting six years of too lengthy courtship) and I were having an important conversation this morning. We know that it is "Spring Forward--Fall Back", but we were having a hard time figuring out how we would be feeling when we woke up Sunday morning. Would we feel like we had awakened too early, or would we feel overly sleepy? We processed it for a good while and then we went back to sleep. Please, tell us the answer to how we will feel when we wake up on Sunday morning.


Any answers for the man? It sounds like global amnesia might be setting in again.


  1. Oh my gosh, what a cutie! Can I adopt him for my Father in Law! The snowsuit should keep you warm :)

  2. Hmmm...well, I woke up at 5:00, eventually got up at 5:30, but low and behold it was 4:30 - arrrghhhh. So, I think the feeling of awakening too early is the answer.

    He IS super cute - my goodness.

    I'm in Ottawa Canada and it's -2 this morning - that's about 25 degrees F. No snow in the forcast though - boooo.

  3. Ha, that is funny! I didn't sleep very well on Saturday night as the air mattress I slept on was set up incorrectly (thanks dad...) so it kept leaking air... So I was very thankful for that extra hour.

    Shockingly, it was 60 degrees here yesterday! Which is crazy for us!

  4. I believe I owned a magenta ensemble like that in which I went downhill skiing in with my family at the age of 7 or so. Good times.
